When is the next Walmart PS5 restock event?

Unfortunately, Walmart isn't consistent when it comes to announcing PS5 restock. For instance, the last time there was PS5 restock the retailer simply announced that restock was coming at a certain time right on the PS5 product page. In the past,  Walmart's weekly circular has advertised PS5 restock, but they don't do so regularly. As a result, your best bet is to follow our where to buy PS5 guide for the latest updates on PS5 restock. 

Once PS5 consoles are available at Walmart you'll have to act lightning fast to secure a console and purchase it. So it's worth creating a Walmart.com account if you don't already have one. Have your address, credit card info, and other details ready to go, so if you happen to get a PS5 console in your cart, you can rapidly check out and confirm your purchase.
